UNRWA chief says he has no intention of resigning – video

The commissioner general of the UN agency for Palestinian refugees, Philippe Lazzarini, said on Monday that he had no intention of resigning after allegations that some UNRWA staff had been involved in Hamas’s 7 October attack in Israel. He said a decision to close the agency would be shortsighted  in terms of post-war education for ‘traumatised boys and girls’. A number of donor countries have suspended funding since the allegations emerged. UNRWA has launched an investigation and dismissed staff accused of involvement in the attack
